My name is Ben Tompkins from Oakland. I'm currently training to ride in the Trek Across Maine this coming year to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer. I lost one grandfather to lung cancer from smoking, another to cancer in the lining around his lungs from mill work, and a grandmother to stomach cancer. The more funds we can raise for cancer research the better!
I am joining thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health. Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
Thank you in advance for you support!
